We are now in the thick of it folks. The nominations for the big show – the Academy Awards were just announced and as per usual we have some very interesting choices as well as a lot of expected. As expected American Hustle and Gravity lead the way with 10 nominations each and 12 Years A Slave pulling in nine nominations.
Maybe it’s because I am a pretty huge Jackie Robinson fan. Maybe it’s because each of the two trailers brilliantly and aptly featured one of my favourite Jay-Z songs. Maybe it’s because that featurette that dropped a while back really gave us a sense of something special.
After walking away with the Oscar For Best Picture for Argo, George Clooney‘s Smokehouse Productions has just sent out a press release announcing their latest film The Monuments Men is beginning production.
In my opinion, they really dropped the ball with the 50th Anniversary of James Bond tribute at the Oscars this past weekend. Like really, really dropped it.
There were a couple of surprises tonight, however the 2013 Oscars was a pretty predictable affair with (and to the actual surprise of no one) Argo took home the big Best Picture prize, Anne Hathaway walked away with the Best Supporting Actress Oscar and Daniel Day-Lewis taking the trophy home for Best Actor.
